Whilst working in the field as an inspector I had plenty opportunities to ensure quality and compliance to federal codes and standards. Under different project managers, not all vendors manufactured compliant to engineering and code requirements. Managers and project leads were not appointed to skill sets, but rather as friends or family. Vendor manufacturing was accepted as installed, overriding inspector findings and references. Their lack of understanding required code and specification resulted in inferior quality and reliability. Why upper management tolerated and sometimes supported these individuals is not understandable.
Pros
Great peers
Cons
Under qualified and inappropriate qualified project managers

Was a great company to work for as a third party contractor. Best company to work for in my 27 years in construction. All management and construction teams were very professional.

I worked for Anadarko almost three years ago and I still have a sting when I think of the way I was treated there. Managers let people run rampant with their territorial behavior, huge lack of collaboration, lack of transparency. I would not go back to work there if they tripled my salary.
Pros
Flex hours, 4/80 schedule
Cons

Project engineers were good to work with and provide support to the third-party inspection team. The projects were organized. The company also implemented a safety culture which was well supported in the area I worked in.

APC was fantastic. I'd have been content to spend the remainder of my career with the company. APC was acquired by Oxy in August 2019. As a result, the company was split, with the headquarters moving to Greenway Plaza with Oxy.

This company no longer exists. It was a very good company and I enjoyed my time there while they were still operating. They were purchased by Occidental and I am no longer sure how the work environment is.

The Denver office was great to work for. I didn't have any issues except for the mass layoff they did. The Denver office shut down not too long ago I heard.

Project leadership and politics diluted the productivity of employees as a whole. There was a lot of angling for glory or credit by leadership which eventually permeated through to employee behavior.
